Flu season is just around the corner, and ACC hopes to help you avoid the high fevers, fatigue, muscle aches, and severe headaches. Getting a flu shot also protects those around you such as infants, seniors, and those with weakened immune systems who are more vulnerable to getting the flu. So, roll up your sleeve and Sign up for your flu shot at the ACC Flu Shot Clinic on your campus!
Register here to book your visit! Priority will be given to those with appointments, but there still may be a short wait. Walk-ins may be accepted as time and supplies permit. To expedite this check-in process, please be sure to have your BCBS Insurance Card AND your Driver’s License.
***Round Rock will be having a flu shot clinic as well on October 14th from 11am-1pm in room 3105 through the Health Sciences Department.
B12 shots will also be available upon request for $20 if you are interested. This year’s flu shots are quadrivalent, meaning they protect against four different strains of flu and are preservative-free. To learn more about flu shots in general or read up on facts and myths, please review information on the Centers for Disease Control’s website HERE. You are also encouraged to consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns pertaining to your personal health.
A new academic year is upon us! Human Resources hopes you will get back into a good workout routine this fall. One way to get started is with the Employee Wellness Program fall exercise classes. Sign up HERE for a class that works for you!
These classes are FREE to all Faculty, Adjunct Faculty and staffing table employees at ACC. You may sign up for classes at any campus, but make sure you get prior approval from your supervisor. Space is limited and spots are open until filled, so be sure to sign up!
If you want even more options for exercise classes, don’t forget you can use your Tuition Vouchers to sign up for classes through Continuing Education or Kinesiology as well. We also offer a couple of discounted fitness membership options for full-time ACC employees, if you’re interested.
